Lance Corporal Stephen Daniel Monkhouse was born in Greenock, Scotland, and lived with his mother, Linda Watt, in his town of birth. He was 28 years old, was a father to Brandon and an older brother to Allan, Ashleigh and Stacey.
He began his Army training in December 2003 and subsequently joined the 1st Battalion Scots Guards in Germany in 2004. He immediately deployed as a Warrior Driver in Right Flank on Operation TELIC 5. It was during his time with Right Flank that he developed a reputation as an immensely fit and robust infantry soldier.

Lance Corporal Monkhouse's family paid the following tribute to him:
"Although Stephen died in very tragic circumstances, it is comforting to know that he died doing a job he loved – being a soldier. He loved the Army and the Scots Guards.
"He died trying to help save another life, that sums Stephen up. He loved life and lived it to the full and his memory will live on with us and his friends forever. God bless you son."

Just wanted to say how sorry I feel for your mum, dad and family at this very sad time. I didn't know you Stephen, but my beautiful son Barry Stone knew you well. Barry hadn't seen you in a while as he has been away...he joined the RAF in July 2009.
I hope and pray that I never have to go though the pain your mum, dad, brother and son and all your family are going through at this time.

Maybe someday someone will be able to answer many questions...why are so many of our young men and women being lost in this senseless conflict...this un-winnable war.
Why are so many families going through this pain.
Barry says you were a gentleman...a real true gentleman. He reminded me of the times you, Cheesy, Andy and himself had in the past...and all the fun you boys had. Sadly Andy is no longer with us...so maybe you could look him up when you get to heaven.

You are in every sense...A HERO...be proud young man of what you did to save your friend and colleague. God will make sure you receive your angel's wings soon...very very soon.
